Penrhyn Castle [Aug. 22nd, 2009|11:13 pm]
demonmoonglow
Gorgeous sunny day and a family trip to Bangor and Penrhyn Castle. Primarily to see the photographic exhibition where my son had won second prize but also a chance to visit this stunning castle. An amazing place, super dinning room, lots of bedrooms and 4 poster beds, large Victorian kitchens and pantries, doll museum, steam train collection, exhibition on slavery presumably because the original family's money came from the sugar trade in the West Indies. All set in huge gardens overlooking Snowdonia and Anglesey across the estuary.
Unfortunately no inside photography allowed as usual but found a couple of these on the web



 



Congrats and the winning photo

Rob and i loved Penrhyn Castle. Not only was the place itself gorgous but the staff's love of where they worked was also apparent, they were so passionate in their explanations of the history and decor of the rooms that we were in there for ages!
It is so lovely to visit an historic home which is unstuffy and you come out feeling positive, rather than drained (as I feel when visiting a number of NT properties)

Thanks very much - a real compliment from someone who takes some pretty stunning photos herself
